Charles Holloway

September 25, 1968 — June 6, 2024

In the words of Maya Angelou:

   “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”  This is an apt description of Chuck Holloway. Everyone who knew Chuck loved him for he made everyone feel special.

   Charles Dixon Holloway was born in Elba, Alabama on September 25, 1968 and left his earthly home on June 6, 2024 at the age of 55.  We are better people for having been touched by his life.

   Chuck spent his younger years in Alabama and then moved with his family to Austin.  He graduated in 1987 from West Lake High School where he excelled in football and track.  He attended the University of Texas joining Delta Tau Delta fraternity.   After college he met and married Amy Anderson and together they reared four amazing sons, Hill, Doak, Witt, and Link.   His happiest moments were coaching them and encouraging them to be the best that they could be, not only in athletics, but also, in their daily walk with others.

   Chuck worked in the trucking industry for R. L. Anderson International and then for BML Crude Marketing.  Whether at the workplace, or selling AHS booster club shirts, or flipping burgers at the ballpark, he never met a stranger.

  He cared deeply for every single person with whom he came in contact.  He was truly in his element helping others expressing humility always.  He was just one of the greatest guys God ever made.

   Chuck is survived by his wife Amy and his four sons and daughter-in-law, Hill and Shea Holloway, Doak Holloway, Witt Holloway, and Link Holloway, his mother and stepfather Nancy and Buddy Harris and his dad Mack Holloway, his brother and sister-in-law and niece Jason, Colleen and Elena Holloway.

   He is also survived by Amy’s family, Barbara and Lynn Anderson, Scott and Brooke Anderson and their children Ben, Brady, and Charlie.  David and Carolyn Anderson and their children, Will, Hank, and Brooks.   Michael and Leia Anderson and their children, Wells, Lillie, Carly, and Anna Grace.

  He is also survived by his stepfather’s children and their families, and many other relatives, and a host of close friends. Friendships and relationships were of utmost importance to Chuck. 

  Chuck was so looking forward to adding Jalyn Scott, Doak’s fiancée, to his family in September and also becoming a grandfather with the birth of Hill and Shea’s baby in November.

   The circle of life, and love, and family continues as we say good-bye to one of the best.

   A celebration of life will be 2:00pm Wednesday, June 12, 2024  at Pioneer Drive Baptist Church, 701 South Pioneer Drive, Abilene, Texas. Arrangements are with The Hamil Family Funeral Home.

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine” Proverbs 17:22 (KJV)
